Hellenic Center for Marine Research.
The Institute of Oceanography (IO) is one of the three institutes of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR) that performs multidisciplinary, basic, and applied research. We study the processes that govern marine ecosystem functioning, as well as their spatial and temporal changes under climatic and anthropogenic pressures.
Our action for climate change
Research conducted at the IO addresses global ocean issues such as climate change and its impact on human societies and the sustainable use of ocean resources. Climate- and human-driven changes in ocean properties and associated impacts on biogeochemical cycles and marine ecosystems constitutes one of the primary research directions at the IO.
